Hello I recently stumbled upon this forum when looking for ideas for my shortly upcoming trip. Me and a buddy are flying up to AK to pick up a buddy who is gettin restationed closer to Iowa. We are driving his SUV while pulling a UHAUL trailer.
We have eight or nine days or so to do this trip and are in our early twentys. So needless to say a big part of the trip is mixing it up with locals and having a good time.
I was wondering about our route. Online sources show going through Edmonton but I am worried about once we get on the eastern side of the Rockies it will be boring flat wheat farm land. We had also talked about Vancouver and coming down on that side of the Rockies and head east.
Are the roads in the Yukon going to be greatly affected by thawing? And is it something that we should plan around?
We are looking for a good views along the way and we do not have to stay on the beaten path if there is something worth seeing.
We leave for AK on Thursday and I was hoping for some ideas, because I have seen some great ones for other threads. I will be checking back also while on the trip if I can! Thanks!
